Powered by nature

The Norwegian national tourist board has as its slogan “Norway. Powered by nature.” It’s an apt slogan. Most of what makes Norway rich is due to natural resources, including fish and petroleum. Most of what makes Norway worth seeing is not what the humans have done, but where they have done it. It seems to me that no area is too remote to live in, no mountain too rugged to climb and no body of water too wide to row. So yes, Norway is powered by nature. But Norway is also powered quite literally by it: Almost 100 % of our electric power comes from water.

This promotional video shows scenes from all over Norway, and from several seasons. Enjoy!
